Front-end code is infamous for starting to decay early, often when it's only a few weeks old. You add class names to battle specificity issues and still your styling magically breaks. Sound familiar? Then let's talk: I have fixed these issues for numerous companies and taught dozens of people to do the same.
Whether you need just a few designs transformed into front-end code or have a project running for months, you need quality code that your team can implement and maintain with ease. With well over a hundred projects under my belt, I deliver on time. I'm happy to work in close collaboration with your team. Get in touch.
You need your design converted into modular front-end code using Haml/Slim and Sass, so you can easily reuse building blocks. You can't have your team spend days trying to fit code into the asset pipeline or copy/paste markup to create partials. With over 8 years of Rails experience, I know what you need.
With an in-house collection of over a dozen handheld devices, you can count on code that works on handhelds too. Not just by fitting a small screen, but also taking into account processing power, memory consumption and touch interaction.
Your web app needs to be responsive, support retina devices and work on handhelds, but you don't want to throw out all of your existing code. Or you want your current design to use a modular architecture and take advantage of what Sass has to offer. I'll help refactor your code to modern standards, lasting you for years to come.
While you or your team could spend weeks of reading and years of gathering practical experience, why not have me teach you what I've learned? Hit the ground running and save valuable time. You'll be able to put your learnings into practice the very next day, guaranteed.
I have taught many individuals and teams about Sass & Compass, modular front-end architecture or a combination of the two. I'd be happy to come to your place too (will travel internationally)!
8H workshop. Suited for everyone with at least a basic understanding of CSS, this workshop covers all you need to know about Sass & Compass to be an advanced user after just one day. Great for back-end developers too!
Upcoming workshop: November 18 — Online!
4H workshop. Suited for everyone with at least a basic understanding of CSS, this workshop covers what modular front-end is and how to apply it to your own projects. For both front-end and back-end developers.
In 1996 I wrote my first front-end code. In 2005 I co-founded 80beans, one of the first Ruby consultancies in Europe. In 2006 I learned about Sass and haven't written any CSS since. In 2012 I co-founded AppSignal, the greatest Rails performance monitoring and error tracking tool since sliced bread. After managing 80beans for over 8 years it was time for a change, and recently I've gone freelance. I'm retaining my position at AppSignal, which remains under active development.
The best way to learn is by teaching. I have presented at nearly two dozen (Ruby) conferences all over the world, including notable ones such as SassConf, Madison Ruby, Rocky Mountain Ruby, Feature of Web Apps and CSS Summit. With topics ranging from front-end architecture and advanced Sass to neuromarketing for the web, I'm sure we can find a topic your audience will like. Get in touch if you'd like me to speak or give a workshop at your event.
Here's the latest from my blog. You can find all articles on the blog page.
CSS animations are way more fun when you use Sass to visually create an animation trajectory, and a great way to learn more about the upcoming new string functions (part of my SassConf workshop).
